Angel Wishes

Chookyblue's Stitch-A-Long has started.  We are going to work on Anni Downs Natures Journey Quilt.
Whilst we were all waiting for our pattern to arrive from Australia, this month we are working on a small stitchery to get us warmed up.
 I am off now to get started on my first few blocks of the Natures Journey quilt.  Come back again next month to see my blocks.

It's in the Bag

It's in the bag is a free project on popular patchwork website.  It only takes an hour to make and has seven pockets all in various sizes.
I have made several of these bags.  They make lovely gifts for birthdays.  I made this bag for my mother-in-law and fill the pockets with extra little gifts.
Click on the link at the beginning of the post and it well take you straight to the website to download the project to make for yourself.
If you need help please email me and I will send you an easier way of making this project.
Have fun.

Wembury Again

Last week I walked the coastal path in my village at the end of a storm.  The difference today is the sun in shining and all is calm.

Natures Journey

My pattern arrived yesterday all the way from Australia!!  I have been looking at my fabric stash and have chosen moda fabrics.  I have not purchased any new fabrics, all these fabrics came off my shelves!
I have also decided to put my pattern in to a folder to keep it nice and easy for me to find in the box.
All I have to do now is find some threads for the embroidery, read the pattern and start cutting out some blocks.

I took this photo as I walked along the coastal path in my village today.   
We have had some stormy weather recently.  All sailings to France have been cancelled.  I know I would not enjoy travelling to France by ferry in this storm.
After my walk I enjoyed a nice hot chocolate and some stitching on my Stitch-A-Long project.

Stitch-A-Long 2015

I have once again joined Chookyblue and Susan for a new Stitch-A-Long.  The quilt for this stitch-a-long is Anni Downs Natures Journey.
I have ordered my pattern from Anni Downs Hatched and Patched website.  Now I am off to find some fabrics from my stash.

My Word of 2015

My word for this year is 'Opportunity'.  Peg at Happy in Quilting always places a picture with a quote/saying at the end of each post. Peg's post yesterday really struck a cord with me.

We will open the book. 
Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called 'Opportunity'
and its first chapter is 
New Year's Day. 

Happy New Year.
